End of June Recap

I've been away for quite some time! Or it feels that way. I was sick for almost 2 weeks and didn't do much and then last Friday my Sister was in a car accident. She's ok, although it looks like The Incredible Hulk punched the trunk of her car. We spent the weekend with her to chauffeur her around and help straighten out all of the details with insurance and everything. You know, all the fun stuff. Hmmm... When I said "we helped", I meant my Mom. I was more in charge of bringing things up and down the stairs, dyeing hair, and keeping morale up. Here are a few pictures I snapped while we were at her place..
This tea is really good.

I guess it sounds like the last half of June was pretty bad... It really wasn't as horrible as I'm making it sound. A lot of good things happened, too.
1. I taught myself how to cableknit
2. I watched seasons 2-5 of  Supernatural
3. I made 2 1/2 scarves
4. I rewatched Season 2 Veronica Mars (that show was soo good!)
5. I got to spend the weekend with my Sister!

See! Not all bad! Let's all hope July is a little bit calmer though... If I don't make it back on here before the 4th, I hope everyone celebrating has a safe + fun Holiday weekend!

Salt-Glitter Blues

Have I mentioned that I've sorta become a huge fan of Supernatural? Really? Once or twice? Well, this DIY post I found on Pinterest combined a new love (Supernatural) with an old love (Glitter!)
I mean, Glitter from salt? Is there a way I could make a career out of that? Oh yes, there is... Glam Demon Hunter! Hahaha (I'm kidding, I have no (current) plans to become a demon hunter)

So, I got my salt

I mixed blue food coloring with the salt

 I spread it out on a pan

I baked it for 10 minutes...And... I got blue salt.

No noticable difference from when I first mixed the color.
Oh well, I learned how to make blue salt and that's a good thing to know for my next Percy Jackson marathon, but it doesn't make demon hunting any more sparkly. It simply wasn't meant to be.
Have you or do you know of anyone who has successfully made glitter from salt? Or is that what it was supposed to look like?
I'd love to know if there truly is a way!
Happy Monday,

New Things

Some things that have come into my life recently...

1. "Supernatural" Seasons 1-5

I found them marked way, way down and have been obsessed with the show ever since! I'm almost done with the 5th season. It's so good!

2. Miss L-Fire heels.

I'm planning on wearing them with this red and white gingham dress to a friends wedding this Summer. Aren't they adorable? I needed a good pair of black heels and these fit the bill!

3. Japanese Tape/Stickers

I've wanted fun tape for a very long time and I finally bit the bullet and got some! I really like the masking sticker set. It's just like the tape, except pre-cut in strips and dots!

Have a great Weekend! I'll be back Monday with a failed DIY post (awesome, right?)

Cotton Candy Hair

Here's a picture of the new hair color. It really doesn't do it justice, but I'm really bad at self portraits.
What do you think? I really, really like having pink hair.

Hello June, I think I like you!

Today has been a really great day. Really, really great.
1. I dyed my hair pink (just the tips. Like last time. I'll be back in a day or two with photos)

2. I watched a few episodes of Supernatural (Even though the show does kinda scare me...) My friend Felicia has been trying to get me to watch it for... Maybe a year now? They started airing the episodes on TNT from the pilot, so I no longer had an excuse to put it off. The show is actually pretty great. So instead of getting work done, I spend two hours a day watching a TV show! Thank God it doesn't come on during the weekend.

3. I got this vintage dolly nightgown in the mail

4. The best thing, I got a Pinterest!! It may be sorta silly that I am this excited about it, but I am! I've wanted one for awhile, but was too nervous to apply. Yesterday I finally bit the bullet and I got an email this morning saying that I was in! I spent a good part of the morning pinning things, it's so much fun. Do you have a pinterest? I'd like to connect with some of my blog friends over there, too. Here's a link to my pinboards. Hope to see ya there!

Yes. Overall a very good day.
June, you have gotten off to a dandy start.
